Agritourism in Massachusetts

Recently, I read a newspaper article in the Herald News in Massachusetts written by Linda Murphy. In the article Linda talks about the demand from consumers for more farm related tours. The article shares that 20 years ago when the "know where your food comes from" movement started that people's curiosity of farms peaked. Since that time, farms have opened their doors to tourists and have realized that tourists can improve their bottom line. The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources has an agritourism map of the state to help guide  tourists to destinations.
